Thanks, Mark, for letting us know about the update!
I support this work of reinstating Link and consider it a good example of how standards development should progress (namely, without ignoring and even tormenting previously existing solutions which could be leveraged).
At last I'll be able to put links to stylesheets and such staff where it belongs - out of band.

I'd like to ask you not to deprecate rev. There have been many voices from people using it (including myself) that they appreciate it. The advice newly included in the I-D is misleading:
> I.e., a 
>    link from A to B with REL="X" expresses the same relationship as a 
>    link from B to A with REV="X". "rev" is deprecated by this 
>    specification because it often confuses authors and readers; in most 
>    cases using a separate relation type is preferable.
An antonymous relation type wouldn't quite cut it. See [1].

Best regards,

Krzysztof Maczyński
